Small-Space Solution: Bathroom

I love our little 1940s bathroom. A lot of the original details have been retained (and maintained) over the years by our home's previous owners, including the black-and-white tile floor and pedestal sink. And while we do have a medicine cabinet, it's just not enough to hold all of our toiletries and other bathroom necessities.

Enter Ballard Designs' Piccola Cabinet ($249). At just 10" deep, it's the perfect size for a small -- and narrow -- space. But it's wide and tall enough to hold everything we need to store (like washcloths, razors, lotion and toilet paper). We've been using it for a few months now and it seems to be well made. I also really like its vintage, built-in-cabinetry look. It comes in distressed black, distressed white (the color we have) and Italian green. It's delivered fully assembled -- you just have to install the adjustable shelf.
